A parade was held in Warsaw, Poland to celebrate Poland's independence of 19 years in 2017. 60,000 people attended. A group called the Far-Right attenedto protest, causing chaos.
This is a group called the Far-Right. They believe anyone who isn't white and catholic shouldn't be allowed in Poland, especially refugees. They have been growing in power through the election of the Law and Justice party to Parliament.
The president of Poland, Andrzej Duda, heard about the chaos at the parade and was very disappointed.
"There is no place in Poland for sick nationalism."
Now in 2018, there are refusals to accept refugees into Poland, leading to growth in the far-right population
The government of Poland made a legislation to ban information that shows Polish people helped in the Holocaust, This is part of the limitations of free speech and control of media.
Fact: People of Poland had nothing to do with the Holocaust
The group that said the Polish were partly responsible for the Holocaust is the European Union. Poland and that group are in a war, but a lot of people are actually unaware of it. The European Union pays a large amount of Poland's public bills. The E.U. helps pay for roads, schools, and helping clean water. Even though the E.U. does all this, it is not enough and there are many issues.
